I'm trying to make some skins for MW2 with GIMP. I have the dds plug-in installed and everything but when I open it up in GIMP it looks like this:

but I want it to look like this

so I can edit it.


^^This is how it looks like in Photoshop, but i can't open dds files in Photoshop since it crashes every time i try to open it.

Here is the dds file.

Can you upload the dds file here? This may help us determine the problem.

Quick fix atempt: Try to uninstall the plug-in, then re install and see if that helps

I thought that the dds contains of many layers and most of them are hidden.. but I havent installed the dds plugin so I can't check atm.

Okay...
Ehm...
1. Ignore the fact that it sais 64-bit, it doesnt work with my 64-bit so if you have 32, try it!
http://www.aljacom.com/~gimp/gimp-dds-2.0.9-64bits.zip

2. Do you got a 64-bit or 32-bit OS ?

3. I don't know...
I wouldn't used this plugins after all the errors messages pepole has posted over everywhere.

Wouldnt open, wouldnt save, didnt do this, didnt do that.
If you really need this i can dig some more, if not, try another solution or plugin or contact the pepole who made it!

Open it with Irfanview or try this for Photo Shop.
http://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-text ... -photoshop
You will also need the latest Microsoft Directx 3-D drivers (9.0)

Once you do that drag the dds file into PS and you will see this

Gimp doesn't handle the layers in a DDs properly.Even if you open it as layers or as a DDS file via the drop down, it will show only one layer.The rest will be transparent.Irfanview really doesn't do that well of a job opening them either.If you have Photo Shop the best way is to open them with the plugin scripts i provided. :)

Okay! Then thats settled! :P
Basicly, use PS for this.
If you really need to use gimp, you can probably find a genius way to do it! :P

Good luck! :P
